I'm not the best person to give advice, BUT, I can tell you that in order for them to make it (if they even have a chance) they all need some work.

first of all, you need to edit them to proper size. we cannot see flaws in thumbnail photos. make them 1024pixels wide x 683 pixels tall and repost them.

Size is one, the site has pretty strict criteria on size & aspect ratio, images should be 2:3 aspect ratio(same as 35mm film & most DSLRs) or 4:3 l(most P & S cameras and conventional TV) Min. of 1000 px on the long side.
A couple of the images have significant level issues and all are dark and could benefit from some decent post processing.

Cheers

Unfortunately, all of these suffer from quality issues and there's only one thing you can do about that - get a better camera.

Judging from some of the photos in your 2nd & 3rd batch, You are not paying attention!

That will alienate other members more than anything.

Hi,
i like the motives (especially the a380), but there´s too much digital noise. Which camera do you use?

All these photos seem a little grainy. Maybe you saved the pictures on your computer in a lower quality.

Too late now, but next time, shoot at lowest possible ISO and properly expose your images. Underexposure causes noise.
There are some softwares which reduce noise as well, such as NeatImage and Nosie Ninja, but proper exposure should be your preferred way to less noisy images.

They a look at bit grainy, but also the quality doesn't meet the A.net standards.. I like the one with the A380 nose close-up, but all the other pictures might be rejected for common. Good luck!

Something's not right here.

I think the images we are seeing are up-sampled from flickr. If that's the case, that explains the very strange quality issues with them.

Do you have anywhere you can post the original files, straight out of the camera?

Poor quality is often indicative of poor photography and not always a sign of a poor camera. The fact that he was using a Rebel XTi shows that's probably the case here.

Not to sound too harsh here A380fo, but it appears you have some learning to do. Learn the camera, learn some basic photography then learn some basics in post processing, and that will be the first step to learning airliners.net and it's guidelines. It can be a slow process that may involve multiple trips to the airport so you can put everything you learned to practice.  

As far as airliners.net criteria, some immediate issues I see are:
- They are not correctly leveled.
- Some are back-lit. While not always a must, it is generally a good idea to shoot with the sun at your back.
- The aircraft are not correctly centered.
- And of course, as mentioned they need to be within the correct size and aspect ratio limits.

I believe that is the problem. Click on the photo to bring up the link to flickr where the photo can be viewed - in full - in a larger size.
